This is a trek that goes all around the Shiretoko Five Lakes designated as a special reserve of Shiretoko National Park, UNESCO's World Natural Heritage Area, including elevated wooden paths.
This is Japan's first revolutionary Forest Adventure experience in which a licensed leader guides the area where brown bears live.
In addition to the lake, you can observe seasonally changing nature, such as sika deer, red fox, wild birds, alpine plants, and autumn leaves. Because they are not fed, all creatures they encounter are real wildlife.
Please contact us as it may be possible to respond to times that are not in the selection column.

☆ Guide + 10 people or less, quiet tour with limited number of people ☆ 彡

According to the Natural Parks Act, each tour is limited to a maximum of 10 people from May 10th to July 31st, and you can experience the quiet forest and lake. Since it takes 3 hours to walk 3km slowly, there is plenty of time to take pictures, and even elderly people and children can participate. If foreigners also participate, the guide will be in Japanese and English. You may be able to interact with foreigners and experience English conversation.

☆ Admission fee, lecture fee, consumption tax, binoculars and boots rental included ☆ 彡

It is not a complicated fee system that requires various additional fees after application, but it is a fee that includes admission fee, lecture fee, and consumption tax. The guide will take care of complicated admission procedures. If you let us know the size in advance, you can rent out boots and binoculars for free on rainy days.

☆ Guided Tour by Legislative Shiretoko Goko Registration Leader ☆ 彡

    Guest user1日前に予約!ガイドさんに感謝!

    レビュー内容コロナだからとシルバーウィークをナメてかかり、1日前の予約でした。最初は、原生林&断崖トレッキングを希望しましたが空きがなく、こちらのツアーを紹介していただきました。予約から当日のガイドまで全てガイドの綾野さんが対応して頂き、直前にもかかわらず、ストレス無く参加することができました。
    当日は最高の天気で、ご夫婦1組と4人で、アットホームに楽しむことができました。
    高性能の双眼鏡が配られ、裸眼では見えない距離にいる湖面の水鳥などを観察することができました。
    また、幸運にもコゲラの巣作り(キツツキが木を彫る)にも立ち会うことができました。
    他にも、植物、キノコ、熊や鹿の食痕・爪痕・角跡、地層やアイヌ・開拓文化についても、歩きながら教えていただき、大変有意義な3時間でした。
    私は網走から06:41発の釧網本線に乗り、知床斜里駅からバスで知床五湖までいき、09:50のツアー開始に間に合いました。また、ツアーはきっちり3時間で終了し、トイレと軽くお土産をみて、帰りのバス13:10に予定どおり乗れました。
    今度は冬の知床で、綾野さんにガイドをお願いしたいです。

    Guest userありがとうございました。

    こども二人連れでしたが、大変なベテランでお人柄のよいガイドさんにお世話になり、感謝しかありません。
    兄妹ゲンカも小さな怪我も全て上手に対応いたました。
    息子は質問に丁寧に答えてくださったことが、娘はたくさん手を繋いでもらったことが、楽しかったと。
    知床の思い出を深いものにしてくださいました。
